Condemning BJP leader Lal Singh’s threat to Kashmiris journalists, AIP President and MLA Langate Er Rasheed have said that Lal Singh has exposed the mindset of communal forces.
The spokesman said that whatsoever Lal Singh has been doing from day one after Kathua rape and murder case, he has complete blessings of New Delhi and has been given a free hand to use even Indian tri-color to give Rasana incident a communal color. Everyone knows how difficult it is for any journalist to work in conflict zones like Kashmir. Threatening journalists by someone who has been a minister and is a sitting MLA is unacceptable and administration must ensure action against him.
Lal Singh proved so ignorant by saying let Kashmiri journalists not forget what fate Basharat Bukhari met, forgetting that Basharat Bukhari was his colleague in the cabinet and Shujaat Bukhari is Basharat Bukhari ’s brother. His statement makes to point fingers towards Lal Singh as whatsoever he was talking seemed as if he knew why, how and who killed Shujat Bukhari.
Rasheed added that Kashmiri journalists don’t need dictations and sermons from those who are supporting rapists, murderers and Cow Rakshaks but have proved their worth not only in Indian sub-continent but all over the world. Rasheed added that had the threat came from someone from Muslim community, entire national media, politicians, and analysts all over India would have started dragging Islam in the entire story.
